Value: Up to $35,000 per year, renewable
Student Research Funding

The Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarships Doctoral Awards (CGS-D) program provides special recognition and support to students who are pursuing doctoral degree in a health-related field in Canada.  Some CGS recipients may be considered for the honour of having their scholarship named a “Canada Graduate Scholarship to Honour Nelson Mandela”, should CIHR deem their application to be aligned with at least one of five themes championed by Mandela: national unity; democracy; freedom and human rights; leadership; children’s participation in society; and children’s health. All candidates are expected to have an exceptionally high potential for future research achievement and productivity.
